Resources - Receipting

Fast Facts

Canadian tax laws refer to a donation as a gift. Only charities registered with the Canada Revenue Agency can issue official donation receipts. Donors can then claim these receipts on their income tax returns.
Fundraising events such as luncheons, banquets, or golf tournaments involve giving benefits to the donors. These benefits are known as advantages under the Income Tax Act. When calculating the eligible amount for an official donation receipt, these advantages must be taken into account.
